Fun place for coffee and to hang out or bring a book or your computer. Huge tasty cookies. Lots of room. Nice patio.

Good alternative to Starbucks. Coffee menu was authentic. Food & pastries looked good. Lots of seating and meter parking in front.
Very popular coffee spot in Amherst. Always good coffee, great cookies. Good place to meet up with folks. Often crowded with students - sometimes resembles "study hall"!

Great place to enjoy a coffee drink and relax. Service is a little slow but the quality of the coffee and the ambience makes up for it.
